Elmer Willard, against whom rests a grand jury indictment charging him with the murder of Dr. A. M. Chord. is in the county jail. Detective Silas Morgan arrived from Winfield, Kan., with his prisoner yesterday^fternocra at'-'4:18 and at once' hustled' Mm to jaii, A Journal reporter tried, to. .-interview Willard at the jail,' but 'was! for some unknown cause refused admittance by order of the . Sheriff._. To Detective Morgan, however, the prisoner strongly denied the charge on which he was arrested, but said that he was glad th at'-he'-;Md''£e'eTi* : .arrested, < that he was.tired^.df.'-idbdging the' .officers and regretted that he had not given himself up at first and demanded a hearing. . „, Willard is a young man, of splendid physique, standing" 6 feet one and weighs ... at .his best about 220 pounds. His life during the several months of his hiding, has not been the rosiest and he show marks of the- -hard-usage he has received at the hands of the world. Since his sudden departure from this region--early last spring Willard has spent'-most; of the time in Indian Territory, Oklahoma and Southwestern Kansas, .at., which latter point he has an uncle living. It was here that a trace of him was gained by the local officers. He was arrested there by Capt. J. B. Nipp, Sheriff of Cowley -county, on a charge of false pretense. Captain Nipp, who had a suspicion of, the man's .identity sent here for verification, and Detective Morgan'furnished'tae photograph and description that led to. the complete and satisfactory identification of the alleged murderous assailant of Dr. Chord. Willard'Tnf the meantime had dem'anded trial on the charge of false pretense and was acquitted, but Sheriff Nipp.immediately^placed him under arrest on .the charge of murder and' notified Sheriff'Donaldson. A requisition-from the Governor was secured, and armed with"a" proper warrant and this neccessary instrument of the law, the requisition. Detective Morgan, a.'.week':,ago • to.-day, departed for WJofield.. He arrived there Wednesday 'and'''had .no difficulty in getting his man, starting home with his prisoner Friday morning ar'riving^here' yesterday afternoon without mishap. Friday night w.tule they were sleeping on the train Morgan shackled his man to the arm of the seat and slept peacefully and serenely. i It "wiH--' :: be :r remem Wared -"that one evening last February Dr. M.

Willard was seen to ride on the hand car to a point near Denver where he left it on the track and went to his home. The story of his attempted captuie.,by the officers and the eha'seheigavejthem through woods and fields and^hi^final escape and disappearance, is. well know.n to Journal readers. His father.is'a. respectable and well to do citizen of Denver and the prisoner has a brother who runs baggage between Detroit and Chicago on the , Wabash. To this brother Wiiliard sent a telegram last night, asking his.. assistance. The prisoner will probably be given a trial at this sitting of court. Capt. Nipp. the Kansas sheriff who made the .arrest, is one of the best known and most efficient of western sheriffs and holds office in a . region where promp' action and decisive measures are at all '. times necessary. It was he 'who not many days ago made the sensational arrest of ihe four Santa Fe train" robbers, the particulars of which episode are well known to reader? of the daily papers.
